Ode to the Prisoner

Moonlight guides the Drunken Ship,(Narrenshiff)
Stars shine marking its path
Outstreched sea is the eternal shroud of darkness
No passage of time on this great voyage
Clinging hope for ports to dock,
Hanging over the edge of reason
Staring out into the abyss
Men climb for forbidden pride
What folly is this?
Shreiking cries rise from the passengers
A great wave of woe!
Fools sing undending songs of silence
Staring out into the maelstrom
Cloaked figures drink our last drops of reason
Men swim naked to Truth while musicians strum
While a rising void cleanses every soul
